Reasons Why Businesses Need Security for Their Office 365

Have you ever stopped to think about whether the data in your Office 365 (O365) is backed up? If the thought hadn’t crossed your mind, it might be time to take a serious look at how you can protect your Office 365 data. There are many who believe that Microsoft takes care of data backup for its customers, but that’s not the case. This misconception can leave users at risk of losing important business data.

While Microsoft is committed to managing the O365 infrastructure, the responsibility of protecting your own data lies on your shoulders. If you’re interested in learning why your business needs security for its O365, keep reading to discover reasons it’s crucial to backup your data.

Why Back Up O365?

As more and more businesses turn to O365 to meet their needs, vulnerabilities in data protection have begun to surface, making it crucial for backups to be implemented. Failing to do so can result in external as well as internal threats. As a matter of fact, hackers may not always be the ones to blame for threatening your data security.

Employees have become more and more of a threat as a result of negligence or a lack of security knowledge. And when it comes to external security threats that could include ransomware, malware, viruses, and more, having a solution dedicated to your business and employee data protection is of great importance. Microsoft’s backup or recovery functions, in some cases, won’t be adequate enough to handle serious issues.

Additional reasons to backup your O365 include accidental deletion, retention policy gaps, penalties or fines due to not meeting legal and compliance requirements, and more.
